    Tjtalon - My mare's name is Shiloh, she's 16.2hh. Thanks for the tip. I'm really hoping that I can see other boarders there when I visit the new barn. I want to see how they interact with the BO. If they seem happy, or frustrated. I don't want to go to a barn with drama.

    Corgi - Thanks for the info...I'm pretty nervous about moving her, but I need a drama free barn. I'm sure if I'm not comfortable, then Shiloh will feel something's wrong.

    I have no riding photos but here is Bugs on the only good grass we have. I moved him onto it this morning and he is as happy as a pig rolling in poo. So much so he did his dead horse impersonation and, I'm to lazy to stand so I have a munch while having a laying down.

    It seems something weird is going on.
    I have posted a few photos but they don't show for me nor does my avatar

    I have photos of Smoky, and my grandson having a ride which I will post when it all gets going again.

    If the post of Bugs is showing could someone let me know. If I still can't view its off to the I T guys for me.

    I have noticed the word d.a.m.n is being sensored it comes up as
    **** darn it.

    Thanks for all the tips on th 'float'. I will tuck that info away. I really do think it's a great price. Looked into the brand, and it appears to be a good one. After much consideration....I think I want one with a dressing room.

    I am not sure of what I will be doing in a year, but I would rather have a bit too much than wishing I had more. This should be a long term purchase...unless I fall into $$$$$, which shouldn't happen until my mom dies....and that better be a while!!!! so....I'm going to keep searching. Plus, I'm accustomed to having a dressing room from years back.....

    Thanks again. And corgi, that float looks good!!

    It is raining this morning. I'm so glad we got the furniture & hay here before it hit. Had the pellet stove on yesterday-so nice!. Today I will be cleaning the new things & figuring out what I want to put in them. My mare had 1 rear leg a bit puffy after Sunday's ride, but it is back to normal now. My repaired boots were pretty hard to get on-the instep is much tighter & a bit of the width is gone, also. If I ever have something like this done again-I will have to stress that I don't want the top part made any smaller-they no longer feel like slippers-boo-hoo! I'm hoping they do stretch a bit. I am very happy w/the insulated boots though-nice to be able to close them now & the leather extension looks fine. We lost our Bountiful Basket site out here-I guess there wasn't enough participation during the summer, so it was dropped. The sites in town often sell out-w/80-90 baskets at each one. Most of them are outside, so it's not as easy to participate.
    Anybody got riding plans for the W/E yet? I'll have to work around the weather, but I definitely want to get out again.
    Have a great day everyone!

    Stan, I see the pics of Bugs in the first post, but the second post only has the links.


    NikerMacker17, the hauler I have has the dressing room and a tack room. The tack room is under the manger and has access from either side while the dressing room is only accessible from the right side. I need to bring it around and do some repairs on it, but have been so tied up with other things and I haven't been close to ready to take any of the horses out of the neighborhood yet.

    I eventually want to get a goose neck 3 horse slant with small LQ. Nothing huge or fancy, but enough to handle us for a 3 day weekend. I would gladly do the repairs on this one and sell it to you at a great price, but the drive would put your cost above what a good one there will run you.

    Here's another.........not bad either! More $$$ but newer, but like the ideas of a slant load, as I may often only transport one.....
